Disclaimers for the ShowEdit
Since the season 7 debut (an airbag), a short disclaimer clip is added before the intros to the episode. And prior to season 8, they also re-literate that safety is one of the many main concerns. The first "do not try this at home" disclaimer appeared before the dynamite episode in season 2 and the lava lamp episode in season 3. When the disclaimer appeared before the airbag episode, viewers initially assumed it was a one time thing to emphasize the seriousness of the danger of the airbag experiment. But then it appeared in the glitter ball and all subsequent episodes of TMS.
Initially it was a single disclaimer filmed with the lab as the background, then they began to use a blue background and different disclaimers appeared, some of which poked fun at themselves. Usually Jon would be the only serious one of the three, but at least once it was Jory.
Fulton Microwave Fire TragedyEdit
In a recent Episode of Jon's World, Jon highlighted the utmost importance of avoid parodying of the show because of a recent accident involving a 12-year-old YouTube user Microwaverz in Fulton, Illinois. Basically what happened on the 23rd November 2010, he was microwaving some certain stuff, but things went wrong. The whole apartment unit and the neighboring units went up in smoke. Even the pharmacy directly below the flat wasn't spared. It took overnight for the fire department to control the blaze. The one casualty who perished in the fire happened to be the mother of Microwaverz. It also resulted in the loss of home, belongings, pets and the affected business of the pharmacy below. Watch the episode of Jon's World below to get a further understanding that microwaving the wrong stuff is dangerous and should not be tried at home. The fire was caused when Microwaverz microwaved some dynamite.
